Dodging the Roadkill: Time

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Time is everything in this world.  What time is it?  How much time?  Do I have enough time?  Is it time yet?  I need more time!  There’s not enough time in the world!  Time heals all wounds.  Just give me time! 

What we do with our time defines us.  How do you spend your time?  Is it YOUR time?

Anyone who has been through an extended illness or injury can tell you that how you spend your time can either make you better or it can make you “batty.”  I’ve had a lot of time on my hands trying to recover from this accident and I’ve spent too much time worrying about things that I know will take care of itself, in due time!

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be writing about another motorcycle accident, just one year removed from my last one.

WHAT. THE. HELL. AM. I. DOING?

Dodging the Roadkill: Regaining My Mojo

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Bikers have been described a million different ways.

Cocky, arrogant, fearless, dangerous, and on and on.  Let’s face it, you can’t ride one of these things and be a “scaredy cat.”  So what happens when you have an accident?

Those of you who have had an accident, know what I’m going through and while my injuries were not that serious or life threatening, the psychological confusion has been a little weird.

It was 2 1/2 weeks before I was able to pick up my motorcycle.  The day I picked it up, I took off for a ride.  It was 94 degrees, and I just cruised some back roads that I ride all the time.  Something familiar.  Something I had ridden a million times.
